Brewery Ommegang: Art of Darkness


We’ve got a rainy weekend full of thunderstorms ahead of us, Saratoga. What do we love? Buckling down with a fuzzy blanket and glass of a rich dark ale to watch the rain and listen to the thunder crackle across the sky. Ommegang’s Limited Edition Art of Darkness has been specially crafted for rainy days, like the ones ahead of us. It is a rich, Belgian-style dark ale that pours like cola and supports a tan head of soft foam, with champagne-like carbonation and rich malt flavors of barley, wheat, and flaked oats.

This strong ale boasts an 8.9% ABV, and is brewed simple, using no added spices or flavors. Though you’ll smell toffee, raisin and vanilla, and taste licorice, caramel, dates and plum, the rich aroma and taste that you experience is derived entirely from the malts!

Beer Advocate rates as an 89. It’s a limited brew that can be enjoyed immediately or aged in the cellar for a number of years. Celebrate the simple beauty of a summer thunderstorm with the simple beauty of a dark ale. Available at Healthy Living for a limited time!
